President’s Message 1/1/20

Happy 2020 to all the friends of Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum! I want to share my most heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your continued support of the museum and all that we accomplished in 2019.  This coming year is shaping up to be an exciting one!  As we move forward into the New Year we will be celebrating the 125th year of the deWitt Cottage!  

In the coming months your Board of Directors  along with the director, Lynn Hightower, will develop goals and objectives that  will support our vision as well as create a more sustainable foundation for the museum. Special events and other programming will be a focus in 2020 as we continue to fundraise, as well as friend-raise. These events will allow members, guests, and visitors to experience the full breadth of the AWHM. Mark your calendars now for Sunday, October 11th as we prepare to host the 125th Birthday of our historic deWitt Cottage.

It is not too late to make a tax-deductible gift to the museum. Please contact Mr. Hightower at 757-437-8432 to make your pledge. Brass plaques and brick pavers are also an option should you wish to honor someone in a more permanent manner.
I again thank each of you and look forward to seeing you at our first “Dine Out for the de Witt” event on January 13th  at IL ‘Giardino’s and at the Back Bay Wildfowl Guild membership meeting on February 4th.

We have much to be thankful for as we begin a new decade!

Jason Seward – President
